Diesel-electric submarines to be tracked by unmanned marine vessels

Diesel-electric submarines to be tracked by unmanned marine vessels

Diesel-electric submarines are difficult to track as they are virtually silent and can stay submerged for extended periods of time. As the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) attempts to counter this imposing threat through the Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) project, multiple companies have received design contracts for the proposed vessel as the initial phases of the project get underway.
